3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled at Belgobaren (Stochkolm).
Yellow golden color, much intense one. Optimal body with persistent bubbly aspect. Creamy head of good resistance. Much coolness aroma, realy stinging with notes of banana and stum, indeed rich bouquet. Much lively and crisp taste; overbearing alcohol notes. Much solid but altogether much pleasant one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A hazy medium yellow beer with a huge, frothy/fizzy, lacing, mostly lasting white head. The aroma is lightly to moderately malty, lightky to moderately hoppy, lightly yeasty, with notes of bread, citric fruits, flowers, a hint of banana and spices. The flavour is moderately sweet, lightly sour, lightly bitter. Medium body, lively carbonation, long finish with medium bitterness. No thrill, but a balanced and well brewed Belgian ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bouteille de 330 ml, achetée Au Grain d’Orge à Crissier (CH). Blonde saturée à superbe col de mousse blanche, formant dentelles sur le verre. Parfum de malt, douceur et zeste, orange, coriandre, toast. La bouche est douce, sucrée, parfumée d’épices, fruitée, touche de levure, caramel. Légère, goutue et désaltérante, elle se pare d’une amertume houblonnée herbacée en finale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 33 cl. Golden beer with many bubbles with beautiful creamy light unstable head that lasts. Aroma of fruits and malts. Taste is very similar: fruity taste, malts and some sweetness in the finish. Very enjoyable beer, especially in the summer (with a light alcohol percentage).

3rd October 2008. Pale gold beer. Dry and crisp. Mild watery malt and just a hint of a little sourish hop at the end. Goes down okay but lacks something.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, at My Way in Hanoi. Bright yellow-gold. Moderate head. Fruity aroma is passionfruit, pineapple, honeydew, dragonfruit. A mild tropical fruit salad with some yeast in the background. Moderate to big carbonation. Slightly thin palate is watery but quaffable. Some fruit rind carries over. Excellent bitterness. Great balance of fruity and dry. Easy, could drink a lot. The malt character is nice, and hint of metal adds character. Has a grapefruity quality, reminiscent of La Caracole.

Slightly hazy dark straw. Herbal-lemon balm, coriander leaf nose is slightly hoppy and yeast. Fun. Palate is dynamic but still shows some pepper notes. Lots of perfumey coriander. Not bad balance. Finishes herbal and with a dryness that shows gin, hop and alcohol. Interesting, approachable abbey ale.
